- 1 egg
- 1 peach
- 225 ml milk
- 3 tbsp honey
- a pinch of salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 500 g (17,5 oz) oatmeal
- 150 g (5 oz) black currants
- vegetable oil (for greasing)
- vanilla sugar – to taste
- 1 peach
- 3 mint leaves
- 1/2 tsp of jam
- 60 g (2 oz) ice cream
- a handful of black currants
First, let’s combine dry ingredients - put the oatmeal in a bowl and mix it with baking powder, vanilla sugar, and salt.
Then pour milk above and stir in an egg. Next, add honey and stir to combine (you may put sugar or jam instead of honey).
Wash berries and remove stalks. Rinse a peach and cut it finely. Add the ingredients to the oatmeal mixture and stir until smooth. Grease a baking dish with a vegetable oil. Transfer the prepared mixture there and even the top of it.
Bake the pudding about 25 minutes at 180°C (356°F).
Decorate with peach cut into strips. I also cut out nice “hearts” from the peach. Arrange black currants from one side. Add a piece of ice cream from the other side. At the end put jam and mint leaves.
Enjoy your meal!
